In the few scenes Amelia Cooke gets as a half-breed, she pretty much smokes up the screen in a generally enjoyable and outrageous performance.

However this movie is absolute garbage, no plot movie all over the place rubbish special effects, how i wished i'd not bothered to waste around two hours of my time on it.

pretty dull & not much fun .

The rest of the characters are stereotypical and boring to the point that none merit any mention.

After the first half moves a bit slow sometimes, introducing Sara as the newly created alien in human shape, the second half contains more action when other alien clones start fighting Sara.

Two beautiful actresses on display here(Sunny Mabrey & Amelia Cooke) who are certainly appealing, but the story serves no real purpose anymore, with highly variable F/X, and an overlong plot that has quite a few lulls, though a smattering of thrills.

The entire movie is just so drab.

The half-breeds were a nice touch to the whole mythos but provided no plot advancement at all.

The film, attempting to be suspenseful and intriguing, just takes everything so seriously!

The idea behind the premise starts off promising enough, to only become too familiar, drawn out and unsatisfying lame.

Things take a long time to get going and really it's pretty boring at times.

*Yawn* .

Sound effects come through, though the music score stayed in the background and the cinematography is typically bland.

All these films have been B-movies and SPECIES III is no different, but what is perhaps most surprising is that this one manages to be just as entertaining as the first film – even though it's clearly been made on a much lower budget and without any famous faces.

The worst movie of all time.

Natasha Henstridge has a short participation in the initial sequence; Robert Knepper has a good performance in the role of an obsessed scientist and Robin Dunne refuses the irresistible invitation of Sara "to exchange services" and completes the reasonable cast of this entertaining movie.

Since the film spends a large amount of time dealing with the biology of the girl and what they can do to make it viable in further tests, with only the occasional interaction otherwise shoehorned into the film to keep us from getting bored, it does give off it's hand that there's not a whole lot going on here during these parts save for the nudity.

At the half-way point, this changes drastically, and though we thus get 2 halves of film(that don't fit together), neither are that compelling.

One major problem with the film, as with the original, is that it runs way too long at 112-minutes.

Entertaining B-movie.

Abbot and Dean return to find the empty cocoon and the dead dean and realize what happened.

This is a pretty dull movie.

has happened', the film settles into its droll, predictable groove that I expected it to do.

All things considered, it's pretty good, better than it should have been, but the pacing can at times make the film unwatchable.

Sunny Mabrey is a boring alien, who certainly isn't being seductive enough, even though that's basically the only point of her entire character.

As nature will have it,she breaks free from his shackles and the ensuing bloodshed and gore makes for a very entertaining sci-fi movie,though it is a trifle low-key as far as special effects are concerned .

There's some quite icky horror scenes with lots of puss and blood for those who like that but the plot is just boring, which bodes badly for Species 4, since it has the same writer as this one.

What happens when you take most of the sex and a good portion of nudity out of a Species movie and throw in a low budget and boring script?

As if to compensate for the film's rather far fetched and tedious storyline, director Brad Turner sees fit to pack in lots of explicit gore (which is always welcome) and another beauty with nice ta-tas—a second foxy alien, played by brunette scorcher Amelia Cooke (who does the decent thing and gets her kit off within minutes).

After that, the plot is fairly predictable.

" Entertaining horror Sci-Fi sequel.

The lines and lines of sci-fi guff and theorizing between the professor and his little helper were just too frequent and boring - especially for one who doesn't follow this stuff well.

You get Species 3, which is appallingly boring when compared to the other movies.

Sadly, the worst thing is the script, which has long slow stretches of nothing much happening and then rushes the action at the climax.
